CEREC Same-Day Dental Restorations – Plano, TX
Get a New Dental Crown without the Wait
When damage or decay reaches the point that a regular filling won't adequately repair a tooth, Dr. Blankenship or Dr. Patel will likely suggest a crown. Usually made of porcelain or precious metal, crowns cover an injured tooth to strengthen the remaining structure. However, the traditional two or three appointments needed to have them created and placed can feel like a lifetime for struggling patients. Thankfully, our dentists offer state-of-the-art CEREC same-day dental restorations in Plano, TX to provide attractive crowns for our busy patients in just one hour-long appointment.

The CEREC® Process
The process starts with our team taking a precise 3D image of your affected tooth using a digital scanner. Your dentist will use this to design your crown. Our CEREC machine can mill a gorgeous, all-ceramic restoration in about an hour. CEREC allows Dr. Blankenship and Dr. Patel to customize the crown to match your tooth’s natural color and shape as closely as possible. We take CEREC crowns to the next level with our in-office porcelain oven. This allows us to stain and glaze the crown so that it matches your tooth shade and looks extremely natural. Once your crown has been created, Dr. Blankenship or Dr. Patel will place it during the same visit.
These crowns are phenomenal in their strength and esthetics and have a documented success rate that surpasses traditional metal restorations. Better yet, we won’t have to use messy impression materials or temporary crowns at any point during the process.
